    I'm very excited to have finally made a decision for our trip next year. Staying at FW Cabins won out over renting DVC points for BWV! :thumbsup2

    Does anyone have more pictures of the insides of the cabin, the kitchen and the murphy bed open? I'm not quite sure what exactly the bed comming out of the wall is like. :rotfl:

    Can you have pets in the cabins too, or just the camping sites?

    If we wanted to request a specific loop, do we do that ahead of time, or when we check in? If I make my reservation online, where can i add my request?

    What kind of stuff is sold at Crocket's Tavern? Is it better to buy grocery's before we get to the resort?

    Where are the laundry facilites? One for every loop? Is detergent sold there also?

    Anyone have pictures of the carriage ride? Not the wagon ride.

    Anyone got a cheat sheet for the bus system?? Orange Purple Yellow??? :confused3


    Thanks!! My children and husband will LOVE this resort! I think we will have a hard time visiting the parks!!

    Try here...

    Campsites only. No pets allowed in the cabins.

    There are no guarantees, but your best bet is to have the request noted on your reservation and then fax it again a week before you arrive. FW Fax - 407-824-3508

    Crockett's Tavern is pretty much just apps/drinks. Trail's End has the buffet and a "take out" section too. Menu for both is...

    Map here shows comfort stations...

    Each comfort station has a laundry facility and has a machine you can buy detergent/supplies from.

    Lots more info on FW here...

    Both trading posts sell basic grocery supplies. Depending on what you need, you might want to shop before you arrive or use one of the delivery services.

    Welcome to the Fort!

    BradyBz12 did an excellent job answering your questions.

    For the cabins, the most convenient place to do laundry will be at the cabin pool area shown on the map. All of the other laundry facilities are on the campsite loops. If you happen to get assigned to the 2100 loop, the comfort station for the 1100 loop will be very convenient for laundry. Otherwise, plan on going to the pool. The soap and such is in a vending machine and goes for $1.00 for a box that will do a load of laundry.

    Don't fret over the bus system. It is simple. For the cabins, you are going to be purple. If the bus is heading to the front, that is where you will catch the buses to everywhere except the MK. If the bus is heading toward the settlement, that is where you will catch the boat to MK. Simple. You will see.:thumbsup2
